As part of the Garden Club of Virginia’s week-long, state-wide tour, come enjoy the historic city of Lynchburg to experience 200 years of history. Stroll through the gardens, orchards and grounds of three small farms on Fox Hill Road and Trents Ferry Road. Explore a 1832 home relocated and restored to its original grandeur. Its privey-turned-garden-shed, c. 1700s outdoor kitchen, and the sheep, chickens and pigs that live there harken back to colonial times. Another site features a cabin with a wide, welcoming front porch and split-rail fence created for a couple to vacation-in-place. Enjoy a classic four-square home with a modern guest/pool house that is owned, renovated and decorated by a nationally recognized designer. This on-your-own tour lends itself well to group bus excursions. Sweet Briar’s President’s home, located a short 12 miles north, is also part of this tour.
Plus select Lynchburg gardens will hold special events during the day, such as the Old City Cemetery Museums & Arboretum and the Anne Spence House & Garden.
